Localities and specimen numbers.

IX: 6 specimens (including 2 simplexes).

Remarks.

Belonging to the cosmopolitan convergens-dujardini complex of species ( McInnes 1994, Miller et al. 2005, Kaczmarek and Michalczyk 2009a, Kaczmarek et al. 2014a), Hypsibius convergens used to be considered cosmopolitan, but it is most likely a complex of very similar (possibly also cryptic) species found throughout the world. The original Hypsibius convergens description no longer conforms to modern standards and therefore a redescription is required. Nevertheless, the examined specimens correspond perfectly with the original description and the Hypsibius convergens characteristics reviewed by Miller et al. (2005).
